Claude Bessy - Dance lesson
DescriptionJacques Moatti has photographed the dancers of the Opera for over 20 years
Paris, but also the San Francisco Ballet, the Beijing Ballet, the company of the 20th century
by Maurice Béjart ... So he could follow the beginnings of Aurélie Dupont, of Marie-Agnès
Gillot, Manuel Legris, Laurent Hilaire and Nicolas Le Riche.
All these star dancers were trained at the Paris Opera dance school,
then directed by Claude Bessy.
From the first year of school to the last show, the dancers are photographed
in all their "states", on stage, but also in the dressing rooms, behind the scenes, in
rehearsals. A hidden side unveiled for us by a talented photographer, and
told by an exceptional woman, an essential witness.
